I do it similar to crwritt. Get a little product on my hands (emulsify, whatever) but not as much as go on my length. Then flipped upside down I slide my hands in close to the root and sort of gently shake the hands a little, kind of like gently ruffling it I guess. And do it in a few different spots. I can't seem to scrunch that close to the scalp. Then I'll scrunch & pump all the hair again.
